Orly Avineri- for pure beauty in journal making and inspiring words.
Michelle Ward –for great inspiration and art challenges
Kelly kilmer - for a huge dose of color boost as well as very useful info about art tools, books and blogs.
Seth Apter – very cool assemblages and collage art..
Geninne’s art blog – beautiful illustrations
Mary Stanley – lovely fiber art
Mary Ann Moss – great photography and cool journals
Teesha Moore – no explanation needed.

busy busy two weeks

Here is what I have been up to:
Teaching two workshops in San Francisco (I am so lucky to live close to this city!).
Photos show some of the great books made by the participants.
Making funky journals (in my Etsy store)
printing on and dieing fabrics (this project will be published later)
playing with Michelle Ward's challenge of making grids (these are made with silk squares, pastel crayons, thread and stitching).
and as always - cleaning, sorting, clearing the never ending piles of stuff.


I have been looking at this picture of my father and I from many years ago. This is the memory that is stuck in my had the most. The happy days when he was still here. I miss him dearly!
